Of course with brand new products there's always another card swap with the Control Freak group. The inspiration from my card came from Pinterest. I changed the colors and some of the elements and came up with this card.
I started by embossing the bottom edge of the Blackberry Bliss layer with the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder. Once that was done, I placed the Large Scallop Edgelit along the design so the scallops lined up and then cut it using the Big Shot. I used the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder on the Mossy Meadow layer to give it texture.
For the sentiment layers, I cut out the shapes using the Labels Collection Framelits. I used the Festive Paper-piercing Pack to line up all of the holes around the edge of the Lost Lagoon layer.
I added the flowers around the sentiment and popped them up on dimensionals. I finished off each of the flowers with a pearl center. Of course the card wouldn't be complete without some of the beautiful Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon. It's so pretty.
I added scallops to the inside of the card just like I did on the card front. Instead of embossing the Mossy Meadow layer, I added a layer of Whisper White on top. I finished it off with another piece of the Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon.
I didn't think about how much work was involved in making this card until I started to make all 30 of them. I punched out 180 flowers, used 180 pearls, used 300 dimensionals, used over nine yards of ribbon, pierced too many holes to count, and ran the layers through my Big Shot 150 times. I was so happy when I was done with them--phew! I do have to say, however, that I love how they turned out. I think all the work was worth it. Thank you so much for stopping by!
